We will get our first glimpse at Star Trek Into Darkness when The Hobbit comes out

When The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits theaters on December 14, moviegoers will be treated to an unexpected preview. (Well, I guess it's not unexpected anymore, what with it being...announced.) Paramount broke the news this morning that the first nine minute of the highly-anticipated, stupidly-titled Star Trek Into Darkness will be shown on around 500 IMAX 3D screens across the United States. That makes it the first preview footage to ever be screened in IMAX 3D, and it almost makes up for the dumbass title! (I'm kidding. It doesn't.) But it is said to be "absolutely incredible," according to IMAX chairman and president Greg Foster, and it is nine brand new fancy minutes of J.J. Abrams' new Star Trek movie that we get to see before it comes out next May. So, get ready to head to the Shire, fellow Trekkies! (via Deadline)

J.J. Abrams' Star Trek gets an official title that looks like it's suffering from a typo

The official title for Star Trek 2 was revealed by Paramount today, and while I never thought I'd say this about anything or anyone (okay, perhaps a couple of times), I really hope it's dealing with colon issues. The title is Star Trek Into Darkness -- four words, a proper noun that consists of two words ("Star Trek") that is now an active verb ("Trek") that makes this title a prepositional phrase ("Into Darkness"). I really hope that someone mistakenly left out the colon in between Star Trek and Into Darkness, because I think we're approaching Pun Territory, Captain. (via Movieline) Read the rest

Karl Urban, who plays Leonard McCoy in J.J. Abrams' Star Trek movies, promised Comic Con attendees that he'd show them new footage from the set of the wrapped sequel. But first: surfing. And a Judge Dredd teaser poster. Sorry, Cumberbitches. No Urban-spoilers today. (via Geeks of Doom) Read the rest
